We have another great week of shows this week at Bluelight!!!
Wide Listener is Kennedy’s sixth album, and it’s his strongest one to date thanks to expressive, evocative, and constantly improving songwriting—for this record, he worked with Lori McKenna and Josh Grider, among others—and a top-notch backing band of some of Texas’ best, including cellist Steve Bernal and Sons of Fathers’ David Beck. You can and should pick up a copy of this album by clicking here.
Scott Copeland is one of Fort Worth’s all-time greatest songwriters. Hell even in this powerpacked songwriter state we live in, Scott is easily in the top 10 dudes alive today, Fort Worth’s weight in the Texas musical mix definitely a mega-booster, not to mention his hits for Cross Canadian Ragweed and Casey Donahew, two of the state’s most successfull TX-Red Dirt acts of all time.
Proud Cut Ponies w/ Cleto Cordero
If you like good music you can go pick up their self titled EP Proud Cut Ponies by simply clicking here. Thursdays are Ladies nights at Bluelight which include Ladies getting in free and $1 wells and $1 lonestars (upon availability smh) before 11 p.m. Cleto will be opening the show around 10:15. Get there early!
Green Light Pistol
Built around charismatic fiddle prodigy, Brook Wallace, and the alternative influences of Chad Fincher, Green Light Pistol is fueled by an endless energy of high octane Texas Folk and Alternative Rock. The band’s sound will take you from the Grand Ole Opry to the inner circle of a mosh pit, somehow cohesively blending the two different genre’s into one. A majority sibling band (all but Chad Fincher), the group delivers up to five part harmonies and up to 5 different lead vocals. Mandolin, Fiddle, Upright Bass, Piano, Guitar, and a built in driving rhythm section, is the musical makeup of GLP. They are also close relatives of your boy Big Lance. He might be celebrating his bday this night also.
Charlie Shafter, Red Shahan, Brandon Adams
Nuff said. Three of the Bluelight favorites on one stage. Feel free to enjoy yourself on this night. We know they will.
